“NUP’s Masereka Works with ADF to Destabilize Uganda”- Says Minister Baryomunsi

Minister for ICT and National Guidance Chris Baryomunsi has revealed that National Unity Platform (NUP)’s Samuel Masereka who was arrested and tortured works with ADF to destabilize the country.

Masereka, who is a NUP coordinator for Kasese District came out earlier this month with visible wounds and marks of torture following his arrest and detained in a safe house.

Upon his release, Masereka said that he was arrested because of his political affiliation to NUP.

While Addressing journalists at their NUP headquarters last week, Masereka said that he was asked about NUP’s plans and funders while in detention before being subjected to torture and later released.

However, Baryomunsi said yesterday while addressing the press at the Uganda Media Centre that security traced messages and government has evidence that Masereka’s mobile number was being used communicate with the ADF rebels.

 “He was sending communication saying they were going to kill the CDF, General Kandiho and a host of other people and all this communication was confirmed,” Baryomunsi told journalists.

The ICT minister said that government carries out all its operations according to intelligence and they will not be ceasing operations to flash out the ADF and their elements in the country.

“In fact, we are going to intensify the search to make sure we flush out the ADF,” he added.

It should be noted that early this week, Masereka sued Government together with the former Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) boss, Maj Gen Abel Kandiho over this case.
